Keep an eye out each month for new messages from your co-presidents, Susan Wolfgram & Becky Pierce
Heartfelt greetings to all of our Congregation. Both of us are humbled by the privilege of guiding our Temple community forward, building on the legacy that Danielle Pilkin, outgoing President, and Matt Stein as Vice President, as well as the Board have built over the last number of years. We are excited to carry on the legacy as well as bring a creative and collaborative energy moving forward.
Temple Sholom is a caring spiritual community, rooted in Jewish practice and values. Acceptance, respect, and connection are at the foundation of our inclusive congregation. We embrace the rich diversity of our members including but not limited to the ways in which we worship and practice, race, ethnicity, ability, socio-economic status, gender identity and sexual orientation. We fully embrace our interfaith families.
We are a community committed to study (Torah), worship (Avodah) and acts of loving kindness (Gemilut Hasidim) in an effort to become closer to G-d. Our congregation is engaged in formal and informal learning at all stages of life for the purpose of creating a robust and progressive Jewish identity. Our emphasis on repairing the world (Tikkun Olam) connects us to our own community, to Israel, and to the larger world through volunteerism and social activism.
We provide the spiritual, educational and communal opportunities to worship, learn, lead and grow our Jewish practice within the context of a vibrant congregation that passes its experience from generation to generation.
In this spirit of connection, collaboration, and diversity of worship and practice, we will be holding two “Listening Sessions” with members of our congregation in February, dates to be announced. This will be an opportunity for you to share with us and the Board what you would like to see different, what you would like to see continue and/or improve, and how you would like to be involved. ~Shalom
